I have been playing daily fantasy since 2013, mainly on DraftKings and FanDuel. But in recent years, I have added playing more on SuperDraft and Yahoo Daily Fantasy. There are a lot of benefits to playing on SuperDraft. The best part, in my opinion, is that SuperDraft offers a Multiplier contest. This basically replaces the salary cap we are used to on other daily fantasy sites and assigns every player a multiplier. That’s right, you can literally draft ANY player, but you do want to take into account the multiplier strategy. This makes it much more friendly and easy to play for players just getting into daily fantasy. 

In the multiplier contests, you will draft 8 players on your lineup. This includes:

1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 Flex (NO Defense!)

Scoring is very similar to Fanduel as it is .5 point per reception or half-point PPR. It does offer player bonuses similar to DraftKings. There is a 100-yard bonus for running backs and wide receivers and a 300-yard passing bonus for quarterbacks. All bonuses give 2 additional points. The multipliers assigned to players can be anywhere from 1x-2x and anywhere in between. So take this into account and factor in your projection for each player.

MULTIPLIER STRATEGY:

Obviously, each week will be unique in terms of scoring, and where you want to “spend”. In SuperDraft, I am fine with playing some of the top 1X players. Let other people make mistakes by fading the studs. The strategy is to find the right mix and combo of 1X players and players that are in a good spot with a good multiplier.

For reference and to continue to monitor how to use the multiplier to our advantage, I looked at the winning lineup in the large field tournament from Week 5. The average multiplier between the 8 positions was 1.38X in Week 6.

TOP PLAYS FOR WEEK 7:

QUARTERBACKS 

  • Lamar Jackson, 1X – With the QB pool more limited with upside plays this week, Jackson stands out as the guy with the best chance to be the highest-scoring QB on the slate. 
  • Joe Burrow, 1.1X – Another great spot for Burrow and the Cincy offense against the Falcons at home. 
  • Dak Prescott, 1.25X – Dak is back! I don’t think they would have brought him back unless he was fully ready and he had a full week of practice. Excellent match-up against the Lions’ defense that gives away fantasy points. 
  • Taylor Heinicke, 1.85X – HOMER fan alert! But in all seriousness, on a week when we’re limited of QBs that can put up huge ceiling performances, this is intriguing. If Heinicke puts up 17-20 fantasy points, at 1.85X and virtually no ownership, this could be massive leverage. Remember he’s scrappy, scrambles a lot, and has experience in the Scott Turner offense and throwing to Terry McLaurin.
  • Others – Patrick Mahomes – 1X, Justin Herbert – 1.05X, Tom Brady – 1.15X, Derek Carr – 1.25X, Geno Smith – 1.45X

 

RUNNING BACKS 

  • Saquon Barkley, 1.05X – This offense runs through Barkley as he gets a massive amount of touches every game.
  • Austin Ekeler, 1.05X – Ekeler keeps putting up monster performances because he has incredible usage in the running game, passing game, and high-value opportunities. Great match-up and game script against the Seahawks.
  • Leonard Fournette, 1.15X – Fournette has the perfect game script to put up a ton of points against depleted Panthers.
  • Josh Jacobs, 1.35X – Jacobs’ usage in the running and the passing game has been incredible this season. Great home match-up against the Texans.
  • Others – Derrick Henry – 1X, Joe Mixon – 1.15X, Breece Hall – 1.25X, Ezekiel Elliott – 1.35X, Kenneth Walker III – 1.4X
  • Value RBs in starting roles with a great multiplier: 
    • Kenyon Drake – 1.65X
    • DOnta Foreman – 1.8X

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

  • Choose your favorite Stud(s) – Davante Adams – 1X, Ja’Marr Chase – 1X, Deebo Samuel – 1.1X, and CeeDee Lamb – 1.15X – all these alpha receivers are in great spots to put up a ceiling performance. I’ll have at least one of these receivers in my lineups.
  • DK Metcalf, 1.15X and Tyler Lockett, 1.3X – Check the injury report on Lockett. The Seahawks receivers are in a high total game and likely trailing game script against the Chargers.
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown, 1.15X – After getting a bye week to get fully healthy, I love jumping on ASB here. May come in lower owned because of the Cowboys’ tough defense, but Goff will have to get the ball out quick to St. Brown against that pass rush.
  • Brandin Cooks, 1.25X – The Texans should be passing a lot in this game and Cooks gets 25% of the target share. 
  • Allen Lazard, 1.35X – The Packers receiving core is thin, and this is Rodgers’ go-to guy. He has a great matchup against the Commanders’ secondary.
  • Rookie WR – Drake London – 1.4X, Alec Pierce – 1.5X, WanDALE Robinson – 1.65X, Romeo Doubs – 1.75X – These rookie receivers are getting a lot of targets and/or air yards and are still too cheap for their role in their respective offenses.
  • Others: Mike Evans – 1.15X , Michael Pittman – 1.15X, Tee Higgins – 1.2X, Chris Godwin – 1.25X, Mike Williams – 1.15X, Amari Cooper – 1.25X, Terry McLaurin – 1.25X

Note:  This is a good place to look for correlation and stack at least one wide receiver with your quarterback.

TIGHT ENDS 

  • Travis Kelce, 1X – I’m fine with no multiplier to get Mahomes’ go-to target, especially in the red zone.
  • Mark Andrews, 1X – Be sure to check the injury report. But if Andrews is a full-go, I want exposure here.
  • Gerald Everett, 1.55X – Everett and the Chargers are in a great bounce-back spot against the Seahawks’ defense. 
  • Others Value TE with an excellent multiplier – Robert Tonyan – 1.5X, Hayden Hurst – 1.5X, Cade Otten – 1.7X, Foster Moreau – 1.85X, Cole Turner – 2X, *Greg Dulcich not in the player pool – see if he gets added. 

 

FLEX 

  • Try to target a player in a high total game to stack up for more correlation or a player with an extreme multiplier in a good spot. Either way, try to target a player that has a good chance to reach their 100-yard bonus and find the endzone.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Each week, I will examine the winning lineups in the large SuperDraft tournament to see what sweet spot worked for multipliers. Every season can have its own nuances, so we’ll track data to make sure we have an edge on the field and are using the multipliers correctly and to our advantage.
